Title^ How do you feel about symbiotes in general? Like them? Hate them? Like specific ones? Specific hosts/symbiotes?

#2 Posted by Juiceboks (8338 posts) - - Show Bio

My favorite host has always been Eddie Brock, and symbiote Anti-Venom. Though Flash and the Venom symbiote are a VERY close second, Anti-Venom's design and powerset wins me over.

Eddie was my favorite symbiote...hated Gargan as Venom.

I liked the original premise with the alien costume trying to bond with Pete, but then when they split it off, duplicated it, and started making a bunch of "Evil Spidey" themed enemies out of them it was just gimmicky, lazy, and very "extreme" 90s.

I love Agent Venom's look, the tactical Spider-Man look. The whole "living parasite trying to dominate you" aspect not so much, but I like that Pat Mulligan was able to teach Toxin to be "good" and not "bad" (although Marvel sort of threw that out didn't they?) which means they are intelligent and capable of changing, brings a whole nature vs nuture aspect to them. Venom himself (the symbiote) has gone from fighting Flash for control to living in sync with him by the end of his run.

I'm rambling at this point, but I think they're cool if you have the will to teach one.

I love Eddie/Venom because he was the first but man does Flash/Venom blow him out of the water

I hate how all of the symbiotes are just naturally evil

It is so nice meeting someone else who feels the same way, I usually get flamed for saying that.

I don't like how they are naturally evil either, a blank slate would make more sense and be more interesting. But as I said above, at least they can be taught if you have the willpower.

I don't know I would think that a lot of people agree that Flash is better

I loved them in the 80s and 90s, but Marvel really dropped the ball with them going into the 00s. Like the Flash Venom, what a stupid concept. As was the Gargan Venom.

I want Eddie Brock back, a more classic Carnage, and maybe Hybrid or Toxin and thats it.

Well, I'm just going on my own experience haha. It's nice to know there are so many out there though. He's pretty much a boss.

They're classic to me as someone who started reading in the 90s. Venom and Carnage are the big two for me and all the others are hangers-ons. Even Toxin is "eh" to me, although I think it's a useful workaround to keep Flash Thompson as Agent Venom, which is awesome.

Flash Venom is in my Marvel top 5 of all-time, and I'd go out on a limb and still rank Carnage as my favorite villain. I'm definitely a symbiote fan.

Err, I mean...

AWH-WAH-AH-AH-AH

Get up, c'mon get down with the symbiotes.

I love Carnage but I actually wish he was more powerful.

Often times I see him get hyped up and then stomped, it's rather upsetting as he's my favorite symbiote.

The symbiot is one of marvels best creations. An organic alien symbiot who gives you powers is cool just by concept. I can remember watching spider-man TAS and impatiently waiting for a venom episode to come up. Eddie Brock and Flash are very close to one another, but it all comes down to what kind of characters they are. Brock has always been an anti-Hero leaning towards villainy where as flash is a hero who leans towards being an anti-hero.

Brock was an arrogant man who thought himself to be some sort of messiah( you get what I mean) where as Flash just tries to make some sort of difference and help others in order to escape from becoming someone like his father. Flash has daddy issues while Brock is an arrogant, pathological liar. These traits are what make them so unique from one another, and both of them essentially are great. I prefer Flash slightly.

Brock Made a lot of character progression but then he was back to being a psychopathy. At leas he's still KINDA one of the good guys.
